"There is just enough information to satisfy youngsters' curiosity and give adults the shivers. All volumes are well-designed with short paragraphs explaining colorful illustrations. Short captions appear with all pictures."

Library Media Connection, August/September 2014

"Close-up photographs and insets combine with a simple, accessible text to provide a detailed if busy perspective on what the eye cannot see."

The Horn Book Guide, Spring 2014

"…provides detailed information for young readers that are interested in solving crimes…an informative book that will interest young readers that are curious about crime solving…recommended for any middle school library and will relate well to young readers, especially young forensics enthusiasts."

TriState Young Adult Book Review Committee, November 2013

"Extreme close-ups of bugs, viruses, cells, and more charge up this series with browser appeal."

School Library Journal, Fall 2013

"To see these tiny bits of evidence blown up and in vivid color is amazing, as is learning about the ways investigators use them as clues . . . lots of useful information here in the text and captions. Kids, especially those who watch CSI shows, will be fascinated. But don't read the chapter on maggots before dinner."
